Nancy Drew: Secret of the Scarlet Hand is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Some things needed fixing I have to say I almost quit this game in the middle. I got so frustrated at a part where I couldn't call prudence Rutherford and the game literally stopped until i clicked on a plaque outside of johannas office and the game could continue pros I like the theme of the maya artifacts I liked the characters I personally liked that there wasnt too many puzzles cons If you dont click on the right object or do everything exactly in order the game will stall until you do the "right' thing The phone numbers were weird. Sometimes if you didn't type 1 you couldn't call , but other times if you tried to put in the area code it wouldn't let you! Near the middle when you are just solving endless quizzes and museum games the game itself gets boring overall a good game but the mechanics were frustrating.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It was O.K. Just doesn't flow but story is interesting. Fun Factor - I would have given a higher rating except I don't consider it fun taking 8 pages of notes, dealing with a jerky navigation system, performing relay races for triggers, and contending with bloated play time. Visual/Sound Quality - OK for an early ND game, but character animations, expressions, and personalities were lacking and sometimes didn't sync with the voice overs. Level of Challenge. I realized that most of the challenge involved taking notes and triggering events. Not my idea of a challenge. Progression required triggers that often required waiting for the next day, then a trigger happens, you run around, then you must wait for the next day.. rinse and repeat. It was like a built in road block just to annoy you and dragged the game out with bloated play time. Storyline. I enjoyed the historical aspect of the story. ND games often have real history tied into them and makes them more substantial. Stories are typically educational and interesting which draws you in and keeps you playing. Overall, I think it was the storyline I enjoyed the most. The rest of it was just o.k.. This is the only reason I give it a recommendation.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Board 2 Pieces I have played almost all of the Nancy Drew games offered on Big Fish. I tried a few times to get into this one. It just didnt happen for me. For the first time I can say, After hrs of playing I didnt even finish. I just didnt want to:-(

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Didn't like at all.... I totally agree with the "bring a notepad" review. I like more fun factor and less reading. If I wanted all that knowledge about Maya culture, then I would get a book on it. But when it comes to a computer game, I want puzzles and more actions to do, rather than running around everywhere, reading, and constantly having to call people for the next action to happen. The few minigames that this game did have were very boring, and only a couple of puzzles. The rest of the game was running around reading and taking notes. This, for me was one of those games that I was happy when completed. Sorry..... but I don't recommend it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Bring a notepad... with many pages! Well, this game came out in 2002 and unfortunately it shows. But let me start with the positive stuff: + nice story + voice acting spot on + as with all Nancy Drew games, mimicking caught perfectly + riddles challenging, not overly difficult + hints by Nancy's friends But, unfortunately, there's negatives... - Graphics are brutal. The game does not look like 2002, it looks like 1992 or earlier. - The game has a whopping FIVE locations, four of which contain just ONE room! - During the whole game you meet FOUR people (five if you count the male nurse). - GAMEPLAY! Dear programmers, having to copy down everything was abandoned by role playing games circa 1985. Other genres mostly didn't even have it to begin with. Having to travel all the time between the museum and the hotel to check the computer? NO-GO! Why can't I have the laptop with me all the time? Quiz activities: Do you really expect that I (or a girl in your target group) read(s) a question, then run(s) all around the museum to find the answer, take a note, run(s) back, read(s) the second question, rinse and repeat??? Never! This is just bad game design and a case for tabbing out to a walkthrough - or for a photographic memory, which i don't have. Bottom line: A good game, but major gameplay flaws drag it down. Issues are solved better by the PDA in later games.
